A new Instagram video suggests a new version of their stoner food is coming out soon

Oh boy; another announcement from stoner food (slash sometimes healthy food?) chain Taco Bell: a new Doritos Locos Taco is coming. "Soon," they say.

In a new YouTube video (plus Vine, plus Instagram since now they're doing that video thing, too), the team creates a sign via fire that reads "new DLT," which commenters are saying means a spicy Doritos-flavored nacho. Which makes sense, of course.

We've reached out to Taco Bell representatives to see if we could get the skinny on the situation, but spicy Doritos Locos Tacos does seem to be the next likely step in this fast-food junk-food fusion mess we're in. But if you're too antsy to even wait for some of the news, you can try mashing up something from two chains: Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. These guys made a taco pizza, all while singing Das Racist's "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell" (the last part we're assuming).

Taco Bell Finally Launched Its New Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos Taco Today

Update, April 16, 2020 10:39 a.m.: It's finally HERE. Taco Bell is launching the Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos Taco nationwide today via drive-thru and delivery.

This new taco is much like your classic Doritos Locos Taco, but with a spicy kick and bright red shell. It's SO thrilling. Each taco will run you $1.95 and is available for a limited time. You can also get it as part of a meal with a medium drink for $2.

Taco Bell also let us in on a pro-tip: One taco is never enough, so if you order it as part of Variety Taco Party Pack (which can include six Flamin&rsquo Hot Doritos Locos Tacos and six Crunchy Tacos) it will qualify you for free delivery. Dinner is served!

Original, April 9, 2020 3:50 p.m. Once upon a time, some genius at Taco Bell decided to make a taco with a shell made of cheesy Doritos, and they named it the Doritos Locos Taco, and all was well. Now, it looks like Taco Bell is taking that blessed creation and taking it up like 30 notches to create Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos Tacos.

We first caught wind of this last week when Chew Boom reported that a customer had offered a Flamin' Hot Doritos Locos Taco instead of a traditional Locos Taco (pictured above!) during the chain's free taco promotion. Though things have been pretty quiet since, Taco Bell confirmed to Foodbeast today that this taco is indeed real. We followed up and, great news, they confirmed the same to us!

This isn't the first time Taco Bell has riffed on Doritos flavors, previously releasing Chicken Cool Ranch and Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos a few years back. But it's safe to safe Flamin' Hot is one menu item that's been hotly anticipated (hah!), with fans clamoring for it ever since Flamin' Hot Doritos were released in 2019.

So when are Flamin Hot Doritos Locos tacos coming out @tacobell?

&mdash . (@princesstepha) April 2, 2019

The bad news is, we don't know like, anything about this creation just yet. From the looks of it, the taco will consist of similar ingredients to its non-Flamin' Hot counterpart (taco meat, cheese, lettuce). Foodbeast heard rumblings that it could be slated for a nationwide release on April 16, but Taco Bell could not confirm a release date.

We'll be sure to update this post when and if we hear more. For now, keep an eye out at your local drive-thru and I guess we'll just have to keep dreaming of what this delicious creation could taste like. Personally, I'll be picking up a bag of Flamin' Hot Doritos on my grocery run this week for taco night. Close enough!

1. Ask For What You Want Like A Boss

While Taco Bell employees might groan over this manager revealing their secret, it's good news for you. Unless there is a line eleventy-million miles long, you can order whatever your heart desires. Of course, every employee has the right to say no to save their sanity when they’re in the weeds (and this is something you should be mindful of, too). When I was a bartender, if someone ordered a blender drink while we were slammed I told them the blender was broken. So, the lesson here is that if you want to customize your Taco Bell experience, try to do it when it's not super busy.

Taco Bell's Bean Burrito

For an easy vegetarian recipe that tastes like your fast food home away from home, this easy copycat recipe take on Taco Bell's classic Bean Burrito is the way to go. With only five ingredients, you can whip up this meal in no time and impress your friends with how similar it tastes to the original.

The ingredients for this recipe are pretty simple — you might already have most of them in your kitchen. You'll need refried beans, flour tortillas, Ortega's mild taco sauce, half of a yellow onion, and cheddar cheese — that's all it takes to bring Taco Bell to your own home.

This recipe is great for beginner chefs, and once you've mastered this simple version of the recipe, you can begin experimenting with your own version of taco sauce, refried beans, or even homemade tortillas. But we wanted to keep it simple with this recipe, and we highly encourage you to do the same!

UPDATE: New Doritos Locos Taco Flavor Announced &mdash It's "Fiery"

Update: Taco Bell has just announced that the new flavor of Doritos Locos Tacos, set to launch on August 22, is called "Fiery." A Taco Bell representative confirmed that this is not in fact a current flavor of Doritos, however the outer chip shell is being advertised with the text, "fire and lime." It is unclear whether or not Doritos will make a new flavor of chip that coincides with the taco. Taco Bell is encouraging fans of the DLT to check social media sites before the 22nd for special opportunities to get an early taste.

Taste Test: New Mystery-Flavored Doritos Locos Taco

After much anticipation and speculation, we finally got to try the new Doritos Locos Taco flavor. The entire Doritos Locos Taco suite of products, which revitalized the Taco Bell brand, has led to 15,000 new jobs and over 500 million sales so far.

Taco Bell dropped off six of the latest flavor, which has been kept a secret. While the type of Doritos that make up the shell still hasn't officially been announced, we were pretty certain that it was the Flamas Doritos after taking a bite.

However, Taco Bell recently Tweeted "Guess again" at the Huffington Post after they declared with "97 percent" certainty that the new flavor was Flamas. This turn of events has us completely confused. We have to agree with Huffington Post writer Joe Satran's new guess that the company may have created a whole new flavor for the latest DLT.

What's the verdict on the new DLT? One taster called them "bangin'" while another said that he, "can't tell if I'm eating Doritos or a taco," which is probably exactly what Taco Bell is striving for. If you want to taste the new Doritos Locos Taco, they will make a first appearance on the Taco Bell menu August 22. Until then we'll just have to keep guessing.

Rip your Taco Bell quesadilla bag for easy access

In a TikTok video posted by user sean.calderon, the user shakes things up by posting another video that is not a menu hack. This one could actually be considered a logistical hack, or maybe a hardware hack.

One has to assume this user has torn a few too many tortillas trying to slide his cheese quesadillas out of the Taco Bell paper bag, because in this short video, he encourages viewers to rip down the side of the bag in order to release their quesadillas from their paper enclosures. All the while, the song "Wipe It Down" by BMW Kenny, which has become hugely popular in TikTok videos, plays in the background.

Some users are less than impressed with this hack. User yeahbabakhan commented, "yeah we already knew." Another user, Tammy Otterdahl, asks the original poster if he's been "living under a rock." Despite the obvious simplicity, for novice Taco Bell patrons, this could actually be a pretty useful hack!

Taco Bell's newest shell: One giant, spicy Dorito

If you’ve figured out a way to sell 600 million Doritos-flavored tacos nationally within 18 months, what’s your next move?

If you’re Taco Bell, you crank up the heat and add another flavor.

Taco Bell says it will start selling Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos on Aug. 22.

Think spicy chili, lime and lingering heat. The Doritos are a deep red, a shade probably somewhat difficult to find naturally occurring in nature.

The first two flavors in the series have already become the brand’s most successful product platform in its history.

“Launching the first two Doritos Locos Tacos were obvious,” Taco Bell President Brian Niccol said in a statement announcing the new flavor. “Nacho Cheese is the top-selling Doritos flavor and our fans asked us for Cool Ranch. For the third DLT, we heard our customers as they told us they wanted something spicy and with flavor.”

A Taco Bell spokesperson said the Fiery flavor will be exclusive to the restaurant , however “it is closest to Flamas, which is available in select regions in the U.S.”

A Doritos spokeswoman said Fiery flavor is nearly identical to its Flamas chips, which has been available at least since 2011. "The new Fiery Doritos Locos Taco product mirrors the flavors fans enjoy from Doritos Flamas flavored tortilla chips," she said.

"A few changes were made to create Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos including the use of a red shell, and a more descriptive name," the Doritos spokeswoman told CNBC via email.

“People's palettes’ have really evolved, people are looking for a lot of spice,” said chef Richard Sandoval, who runs 37 restaurants and is featured on the current season “Top Chef Masters” on Bravo, which is owned by NBC Universal. “I’ve seen it in my own restaurants. Ten years ago, people weren’t looking for heat.”

Sandoval runs restaurants – such as Maya in New York City and Masa 14 in Washington, D.C.-- that often feature Mexican, Latin-Asian, Colombian, Peruvian and Pan-Latin flavors. Sandoval, whose restaurants are far more upscale than Taco Bell, is nonetheless a fan of the concept, he said. He consulted with the restaurant years ago, but is not affiliated with the current launch.

“I think Mexican has evolved in the last 10 to 15 years immensely and they’ve just leapt on that,” he said. “It’s brilliant what they did,” by reinventing themselves with the Doritos shells on one end of the menu and more authentic Mexican food on the other.

The new Taco Bell tacos will sell for $1.39 each and $1.69 for a supreme size. The regular will contain 170 calories and 10g of total fat the supreme will have 200 calories and 12g of total fat, according to the company.

It was in 1951 that Glen Bell opened his very first “Taco-Tia” stand in San Bernardino, California. Bell made this decision after he had spent a long time at his first store “Bells Hamburgers and Hotdogs” watching hordes of people head to the Mexican restaurant across the road. In an attempt to figure out what was in their food he began eating there on a regular basis before becoming friendly with the owners who then showed him how their food was prepared.

Bell went on to own a string of Mexican restaurants and stands before he finally opened the very first Taco Bell in Downey in 1962. After spending so many years perfecting his recipes, the new brand exploded rapidly. The first official franchise was opened in 1964 in Torrance, California. By 1967 the chain had reached a total of 100 stores and by 1970 that number had grown to 325 locations.

In 1978 there was a big shift for the business when it was purchased Pepsi Co Inc., it had over 860 restaurants nationwide at the time. Bell remained involved with the business as a shareholder in Pepsi Co Inc. Over the next few years the chain continued to expand under the commercial guide of Pepsi Co., they introduced a variety of new products and offers to keep customers interested. In 1984 they introduced the Taco Salad and the Taco Bell Grande.

It was in 1991 that the company launched the new Taco Bell Express locations. These locations aimed to deliver a more compact menu but in quicker times and with consistently low prices. Furthermore, in 1995 the company began co-branding with other fast-food companies such as KFC, Pizza Hut and Long John Silver’s. The company now boasts a whopping 6,500 stores worldwide.

Prepare to be satisfied, not wowed, by Taco Bell’s Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos

A few weeks ago I—The Takeout’s Chief Officer of Bad Decisions —was planning to head to Taco Bell to review the brand-new Triplelupa, three miniature Chalupas baked together to become a superlupa. But then everything went sideways and I’ve been sitting at home for five weeks subsisting on a diet of mostly cheese and ice cream sandwiches to keep my body in fighting shape. Now that Taco Bell has released its highly anticipated new Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos , however, I decided it was high time to hop in my car, hit up the drive-thru, and continue researching the never-ending innovations of the fast food industry.

I began my parking lot dining experience with the Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos because, as has long been established by the restaurant chain’s combo menu, tacos are an appetizer in Taco Bell world. It was quite good! It’s not something that should compel you to put on a hazmat suit and speed to your nearest drive-thru, but if you’re already planning on picking up fast food tacos, I’d recommend ordering this one. That’s higher praise than you might think. I’m used to being underwhelmed when any fast food establishment markets a product as “spicy,” but the Flamin’ Hot shell did have a noticeable kick to it: nothing that would have you reaching for the nearest glass of milk, but enough of a burn to make this taco a little more pleasurable than a classic crunchy taco. It loses points for being inferior to Taco Bell’s discontinued and beloved Volcano Taco, but it’s still damn tasty. It earns an A-, because it’s a solid spin on an indisputable fast food classic.

As for the Triplelupa , I found myself—you guessed it—underwhelmed. Part of me thinks this is because I’ve known about it for a month , and while I haven’t exactly been sitting at home daydreaming about it, the anticipation of getting to taste it has been steadily mounting. But as you can plainly see in the photo above, this is not a food meant to be eaten in a car. This item has been advertised as something you can share with your friends when it is eaten alone in a Kia Soul, it tastes like loneliness. The chalupa shell was at once floppy and chewy, like the crust of a convenience store pizza, and while regular single chalupas often suffer from this problem, the individually cooked ones have a greater chance of being flaky and crispy on the outside. The filling had that classic Taco Bell meat taste we all know and love, but because the Triplelupa was designed for a dine-in experience (or at least intended to be consumed on a solid surface), about a third of that filling is now on my clothing. My cats were very happy about this when I came home, so they have given the Triplelupa very high marks. I, on the other hand, give it a C. Stick to a regular chalupa, which will give you the same flavor experience without the need to fish iceberg lettuce out of your cleavage.

In 2010, Taco Bell wrote the Federal Reserve a request to start printing $2 bills again. In an effort to promote its $2 menu and &ldquorally the nation around the new buying power of $2,&rdquo said former CMO David Ovens, Taco Bell created an online petition on Facebook and encouraged customers to sign.

To answer your question: no, the Federal Reserve didn&rsquot end up taking the PR stunt seriously.
